. on the democratic side, the nominee is expected to be elizabeth colbert bush. her brother uses a fancier pronunciation of the name, known as stephen colbert. on the republican side, the front runner almost as famous as stephen colbert and more famous than his sister but not for a good reason, former governor mark sanford. he has a big national profile, but it is because of his fake hiking trip. mark sanford apologized, finished his term as governor and withdrew from public life for two years. now he is back, trying to win back the public's trust and respect by trying to win back the congressional seat that he once held for three terms. mr. hiking the trail is only one of 16 republicans trying for that seat. the others include the son of media mogul ted turner, his name is teddy, which makes ted turner hard to forget. mark sanford is the frontrunner in the primary, but unless he gets more than 50% of the vote in a field of 16 candidates, then it will be a runoff. he and who comes in second will have a runoff next month. the polls open tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. in south carolina. this is the f

. this is where america is. i think what jeb bush, the clip you showed of jeb bush, shows what the dramatic problem is for the republican party. they can't be a party of intolerance when it comes to gay marriage, when it comes to immigration, when it comes to whether you believe in climate change or not. >> well, let me ask you both this quickly. my theory in some ways, it's sort of like gun control was in the '90s for democrats, which is there is -- there are plenty of people in the base of the democratic party who still believe gun control, but the leaders of the party did not talk aggressively about it. so there's going to be a part of the republican base in this december nbc "wall street journal" poll. 27% of republicans broadly favor it. so i don't want to oversell it. 27% favor same-sex marriage. there is going to be a part of your party, alex, that doesn't -- does not want to change principles. should your leadership, people running for president, should they, a., say, look, i support same-sex marriage. fact you can disagree. or should they not talk as much about it? >> i think i per

. are going to make george bush the president of the republic now for quite a while, and we will continue that. e really only have 1 1/2 political parties in the country now. there is a misreading of the republican party in terms of what the problems were. the fact of the matter is republican party is the dominant political party from but the party5, ran out of gas in the summer of 2005, the effects of the war, katrina, people say, what is wrong with the republicans? they have had seven or eight years now where republicans are roaming around in terms of their future, and they are not closer now than they were then. the political parties cannot fix the problem of a party, but they have to avoid becoming a liability. the job of the political party is to make a flat playing field, so the future of either party will determine who the nominee is and the next president is. until republicans take the white house back, they will be defined as a congressional party, the tea party, great for us, and whoever is the craziest person gets on tv and gets the attention -- that will not change for the next thr

be struck down. you have had ted olson who made george bush president with one vote, you have ted olson, and 10-something republicans, this is over. so we're watching a supreme court, 9 justices deliberate they have to hear they have probably already made up their minds, and they have to be looking at are all looking at was the country has moved. the best thing that could have happened to this country was the passoff of prop 8. >> cenk: that's really interesting. >> i call it the right wing's ted offensive. they said we won on prop 8. and guess what happened, two weeks later there were protests around the world, everybody was energized people came out in the streets, straight, gay, and everybody else, and look at what hand. 40% in 2007 and 58% today. >> cenk: so who is going to vote in favor of getting rid of prop 8? >> well, i think that kennedy and roberts -- >> cenk: really? you think it will be 6-3. >> that's what i think. i think the same on doma. we may even do better on doma. >> cenk: man, you are full of boldness today. but you mentioned earlier it could be a
. >> michael: but so far eric holder has shown little leniency. over the entire 8 years of the bush administration there were 200 raids on dispen series. the obama administration has raided two as much in half the time. colorado and washington residents voted to fully legalize marijuana in their state. eric holder has yet to decide how he'll deal with state laws which contradict federal bans on marijuana. joining me now is jon walker, a senior policy analyst with "fire dog lake," a progressive news site. john has been covering the ongoing fight when the feds and the state when it comes to marijuana policy. jon, according to the latest quinnipiac polls, legalizing pot is showing similar numbers to support of gay marriage. is pot the new gay marriage? >> yeah, well the polling for pot and gay marriage is remarkably similar, and it has been that way for years. both have seen a 20% increase in support in the past decade, and both are subject to the same demographic divide. as the old people die out and get replaced there has been a sea change in how people support
marriage equality. that's up some 40 points from where it was in 2004, where president bush ran a whole campaign on defaming gay people and passing state initiatives -- >> bill: yeah, to put it in the constitution -- >> that was the strategy to win in those states bring his voters out, vote for him and of course on marriage equality. so those numbers are going up among all groups even conservatives now some 30%. when you see they started at some 14% in 2004 you see growth. you see growth in the 65-plus senior citizens. evangelicals were at about 7% in 2004, now they are in double digits. so support is growing. it's really remarkable and it has to do with what happened last week, at least in part with rob portman. this idea that as society becomes more accepting of gay people and gay people start coming out there is simply no choice for parents, for family members to embrace the people they love, to support who they are, to ensure that they have equality under the law that they can marry who they love just like their straight counterparts. >> bill: isn't there s
the bush years when democrats blocked a landful of very conservative judicial nominees. in some respects, this might be payback. what could obama do? he can try another couple of judicial nominations. the bottom line is he needs to clear these judicial nominations with at least a handful of republicans. otherwise if they're too liberal, they will get filibustered. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> up next, a huge week ahead for gay rights as the supremes take up two gay marriage cases. people have been camping out in the rain and sleet just to get inside. but pete williams always has the inside scoop. he will get us up to speed as "the cycle" rolls on. try e-mail marketing from constantcontact. it's the fastest, easiest way to create great-looking custom e-mails that bring customers through your door. sign up for your free trial today at otherworldly things. but there are some things i've never seen before. this ge jet engine can understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the grou
of the polling. as you say whether it is the portmans or whoever cheneys bushes, this has become not a partisan issue anymore right? >> i think it is also kind of telling that all you get on the sunday talk shows are old people in the conservative movement that are opposed to gay marriage. it is as if they can't find anybody from contemporary conservatism that's going to come out there and say -- and oppose it. >> stephanie: listen, i have a 90-year-old republican mom when i came out to her she said oh, stephy, you're so pretty. aren't you attracted to men? at the same time i'm her daughter and she loves me. so she's supportive. that's what's happening all over the country. it is your daughter. it is your brother. whatever, right? >> right. i think we have to ask what's going on in america that so many gay people are being raised by ostensibly conservative parents. yes, i'm attracted to men but not as much as horny people on southwest airlines. >> wasn't it weird yesterday they had ralph reed and gary bauer out there talking about gay marriage. it was like just watching "meet the press" in the
